rodham clinton. >> all righty then. as for vice president joe biden, he's set to attend a major political event in iowa next month. the annual steak fry, you can't go, joe, known for attracting top tiered democrats considering a white house run. let's bring in nbc news political reporter kasie hunt in iowa over the weekend with details on these events. kasie, what struck you the most? where do you want to start? >> sort of deja vu all over again. i feel like the republicans never really stopped. didn't seem like -- rick santorum was actually campaigning essentially. he drove across the state in the same pick-up truck that he used in 2012. and he -- >> that's great. >> hit a pizza ranch, he went to blue bonny ice cream. >> you sound tired. was it boring? just admit it. was it boring? >> it was awful. >> no. we had -- it was great. >> you say it's deja vu all over again. contrived and not even sort of thought out as a new spin on things? what are you really saying? >> on the republican side in particular, right, rick santorum won the caucuses by the hair, they announced caucus night romney

here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger

she also had breakfast with joe biden yesterday morning. both meetings in a sense showed some degree of democratic unity in contrast to all the sniping between the republican establishment and the tea party in d.c. lately. what we can virtually be certain of that did not come up was a clinton connection to an investigation at the department of homeland security and some pretty complicated allegations about conflicts of interest and mismanagement of something called the e-5 visa program which specifically grants special visas to foreigner who's are willing to invest half a million dollars in the u.s., presumably to create jobs. here is the controversy now. a guy named allah hundred degree who runs that visa program has been nominated to being executive director at dhs overall. now that's in question. he intervened to help a company called gulf coast nun other than hillary clinton's brother rodham. partners and shares of virginia office building with another company called green tech which was started by terry mcauliff a very familiar name in democratic politics. he is running for gove

president joe biden, who used a previously scheduled speech before the american legion to make those remarks. at the white house, spokesman jay carney was in day two of setting expectations. >> it is not our policy position to respond to this through regime change. we will take an appropriate response, and we are evaluating, the president and his team are evaluating the options available to them. and the president will make an assessment and an announcement in due time. >> defense secretary chuck hagel made clear that u.s. military forces are ready. >> suffice to say the options are there, the united states department of defense is ready to carry out those options. if that would occur, that would occur also in coordination with our international partners. >> but you're ready to go like that? >> we're ready to go like that. >> meanwhile, closest allies are lining up in agreement. british prime minister david cameron. >> now, of course, any action we take, or others take, would have to be legal, would have to be proportiona proportionate. it would have to be specifically to deter and degrade t

the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism, doing something that true solid unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein is that had dozens of coalition members with it. >> i asked neither lee. this what's the difference between doing in this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen, just on a kill list? >> look, there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> greta: you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> greta: you disagree with a lot of members of congress who want the approval. >> there is a political question whether he would be better off in getting congressional approval under the theory in on the the take off, in on the landing. but as a matter of constitutional law, there is absolutely no requirement if congress doesn't like what he does. they should cut off 00 funds. >> greta: i thought today that secretary kerry whether you agreed
operation, so you have the obama administration with people like joe biden and john kerry who spent years criticizing the bush administration for its unilateralism doing something that truly is unilateral as opposed to things done in the bush administration like the overthrow of saddam hussein that had dozens of coalition members along with them. >> what's the difference between doing it this way and dropping a drone on somebody in yemen that's on a kill list? >> there isn't any difference. the president has full constitutional authority to launch this attack against syria. >> you don't think he has to seek approval? >> absolutely not. >> you disagree with members of congress that want that approval. >> there's a political question whether he would be better off getting congressional approval under the theory in on the takeoff, in on the landing, but as a matter of constitutional law, there's absolutely no requirement. if congress doesn't like what he does, they should cut off the funds. >> i thought today secretary kerry, whether you agreed with him or not, looked presidential. i thought
to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d
as a candidate in 2007, 2008, both he and joe biden said specifically that no president can unilaterally go to war without congressional authority. today he tempered his words some and said, well, i've got the authority to do whatever i want, but i'm choosing to go to congress. well i don't see it that way. i don't believe he does have the authority, but presidents have in the past usurped this authority. the bottom line is, once he comes to congress, if it's voted down in congress, i believe that he will be stopped. i will do everything in my power to stop and to have the vote go against involves us in syria. the ram factiifications may be r america, bad for israel. i think there are a lot of things that could wind up happening in the middle east with our involvement that would be unintended and may make the situation worse. >> before i let you go, september was already a very crowded month for all of the things you have to do, just to kick them down. debt ceiling, farm bill, the nsa and the ever-looming implementation of obamacare and now syria on top of that. how will that impact what yo
to have two out of 50 states do it. that is for us, a big deal. >> it is a big deal. bfd as joe biden would say. >> i think you'll see other countries look at uruguay and starting to move forward, too. down through central america, vicente fox is the former president of mexico. we know mexico decriminalized possession of all drugs a few years back. you can look at argentina and chile. i think you can look at a number of other countries that are probably going to move forward. so many countries have already decriminalized, not just possession of marijuana but other drugs. portugal has been out in front. who knows what they'll do. but i think you're going to see a movement here. >> bill: and are we going to see a movement in this country among other states? >> you bet. you bet. you know, the policies for washington and colorado haven't really even taken effect yet. so look to january and you'll see it. in other states already -- >> bill: they're just deciding where people can buy it and how much they pay and what taxes are -- all of that kind of stuff. >> but right here, maryland and pe
to the democrats. vice-president joe biden is speaking on sunday. i has been -- governor cuomo has been brought up as a potential as into canada. guest: we say every election cycle starts earlier and eleanor -- earlier. having been at the dnc and working on president obama's election, one thing that strikes me on our side is how deep our benches. there is a misconception there are only one or two. it's at the top and then we bench.weak this is a tremendously talented field. klobuchar is a tremendous fan of the progressive movement. these are tremendously talented people. i think it is unfortunate to have to start jockeying so soon. yesterday's accord new york times, a very critical piece of the clintons. what impact could that have on hillary clinton? inst: she was serving government running for president and secretary of state when all of that supposedly occurred. it has been reported there has been an internal review. they are getting their act together. a lot of to be doing other stuff. i have a hard time believing that will hurt her in the long run. generally speaking, people want to talk abou
come back and debate is this to get a yes or no. then he went off to golf with joe biden. seem likes an astonishing display of nonchalance on an issue of war and peace. it really is, charles krauthammer said earlier. >> of course, an entire book entitled "the amateur" at the president. look, green light for iran. i mean, who are allies in the region. now has to be seriously concerned about american conviction. >> i think they absolutely have to be concerned. there was reports that saudi arabia was going to russia to seek interests. they're moving away from the american orbit. they can't trust america. to act when they say something is necessary. i do think they see an american weakness. >> remember, hillary clinton wondered during the 2008 campaign whether president obama can hand al 3:00 a.m. now 0 a question whether he can handle a 3:00 p.m. call. this was not something that came up on him in the middle of nipt he knew about this red line since the issue back in august and hasn't sought authorization since then. august of 2012. hasn't sought to get authorization since then. seems h
. earlier today, vice president joe biden airing an event was asked the question about syria, and he responded that the president has not yet made a decision about an attack on that country. speaker boehner yesterday released a statement in which he called on further negotiations by the president with congress, and within his letter he included a number of questions, what specific evidence the administration has about the use of chemical weapons by the government as well as the administration's long-term goals. we will continue to follow this story and update you as the news becomes available. as the president considers the u.s. response to syria's alleged use of michael weapons, the washington institute yesterday hosted a discussion on the u.s. relationship with syria and opposition groups and the applications of a strike on that nation. this discussion is about 90 minutes. ,> if i may have your attention i'm the director of research at the washington institute for near east policy. i would like to welcome you here today and start with a logistical note -- please follow my example a
